We can’t got back to premodern spirituality and religion, I understand that. But can we move beyond the individual, into a collective story that really embraces the individual? That really excites me and I want to share it with you. – Dr. Shahar Rabi

Learn the tools and skills needed to establish experiential and trauma-informed methods of developing long-lasting, sustainable spiritual communities. We will engage in meaningful dialogue about the future intersection of faith, psychology, and science.

There is currently a contraction of consciousness, rooted in outgrown societal structures. Bring home essential practices needed to navigate today’s diverse and complex world, building meaningful connections, enhancing safety within yourself and your communities, and embody the heart of your contemplative life.

The intention of the program is to help you design and execute multi-disciplinary spiritual projects in your community that include art-based, therapeutic, contemplative and ecological perspectives.

[Shahar] brings together old school spirituality with succinct and practical insights into how to work with human heart, mind, and body in these challenging times. This is a rare gift.  If you’re looking to work with someone with deep skill and compassion for the dark spaces, Shahar unreservedly has the sincerity, courage, and humour for pointing to how you can shine a light in the world. – Dr. Sean Park, PhD, past student
